THE DREAMLESS MAN

He walks across the street daily
He goes to the stream fortnightly

This is the dreamless man
Who lacks vision and direction

He sleeps and sees nightmare
And stay awake and sees fantasy
He wants to reap where he has not sow
And grow where he has no land

He wants to reap millet
When he plants sorghum
He that does not work
Should not eat, says the Lord

He has the love of money in his heart
But doesn't know how to make money
Because he lacks knowledge
And knows nothing

Dream dreams my brother
And look beyond here and further
With hard work and perseverance
You will get your wish without interference
